compatability with Linux 3.10.x

I am running Fedora 18 on a E5-2643 chip.  I was not able to build the Vtune 2013 update 9 kernel drivers (SEP etc) after upgrading to kernel 3.10.x due to a change in a kernel interface that happend between 3.9.x and 3.10.x.  Can anyone on the list confirm that Vtune 2013 update 14 hardware counters profiling work with the Linux 3.10.x and/or the 3.11.x kernels?

Update 13 hasn't been tested for Linux kernel 3.10, you might downgrade system to kernel 3.8 - VTune can work.

Just wanted to follow up that I have tested basic analysis, advanced hotspot analysis, concurrency analysis, general exploration and memory access analysis. All work for me on 3.10.7, vtune update 13 on an i7 990X chip.

Thanks to all.  I'll keep a 3.9.x environment around for a little while longer then.
